Well first i am keef and i am brand spanking new to the Ame's fan club and thanks to everyone who makes this site possible!

Well today on Google i came across a telephone number for corporate and i called it and a machine picked up which said " You have reached Ames department stores, Please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. we are out of business and have limited staff.. Thank you"

OK whats going on here? is there a a phone sitting in an empty office somewhere still working? lol if i leave a message do you think someone would get back to me?

The number i called was 860-257-2000

The phone # is for their wind down office.  They deal with mostly employee severance pay, pensions, etc... and other relevant information.  I've actually been in contact with them off and on for a month or so helping someone investigate misuse of a workmans comp claim through Ames.

It's actually located in an office park down the road from the former Ames HQ.  Yes thjey were a fairly large company so they will probably have a minimum staffed temp office for a years to come.

Called it and got "Ames Department Stores is now Closed. If you are a former associate inquiring about address return email jodisoemthingsomething@ameshome.com. Please leave a Voicemail for any other questions." Wayback Machine says that 'ameshome.com' URL is "Under Construction". It sounded like a recording, but it also sounded like it could have been spoken by a lady.

Only got a voicemail box when I Called. Said that I'm really interested in the concept and pointed to this site, and said that we still use the message boards. :)

*bump* Decided to search thru the archives again with this. "ameshome.com" on the Web Archve's oldest capture is 2003. Must have been when they went out of business they took off a main page. A 20014 web capture says that it is under BIG construction: http://web.archive.org/web/20041206004813/http://www.ameshome.com/ until 2005 where there is no more captures until 2011, which it says that you can't display the page.

Maybe they had pans for online paying and such for former employees. I'll have to recall the number, sand see if there's a different response.

Ames website was amesstores.com not ameshome.com

Here's an example from wayback machine http://web.archive.org/web/19961023000450/http://www.amesstores.com/

I think we've gone over it in another thread. It's all legal stuff apparently (we think)(?). One of these days one of us has to go to the actual offices and slip a peice of paper that says "Amesfanclub.com" "2016"..lol
